Festivities abound December 4
By Jillian Chandler
Each winter season in Bonners Ferry, the town comes alive to celebrate the holidays. An annual celebration throughout town, and one you most certainly don’t want to miss, is Hometown Holidays
2021 festivities are scheduled to take place on Saturday, December 4.
For all those ladies out there, Ladies on the Loose, hosted by the Bonners Ferry Chamber, returns for its fourth year. The shopping extravaganza, which kicks off at 10am, is part of the Hometown Holidays festivities that will be taking place throughout the day. Women of all ages—mothers and daughters, aunts and grandmothers, nieces and friends—can spend time together while shopping for those holiday gifts and supporting locally owned businesses.
Pick up your map and be sure to get it stamped at each of the participating locations. At the end of the day, each shopper who has their map fully stamped leaves it at their final stop to be entered into a prize drawing. At 1:30pm, The Pearl Theater will once again be hosting a free Christmas movie that all ages are sure to enjoy; this year they'll be featuring "Arthur's Christmas."
Following the movie, the excitement continues, as Santa and Mrs. Claus will be riding in on a fire truck and making a pre-Christmas appearance at the Georgia Mae Plaza at 4pm, with Santa lighting up the plaza! Make sure the kids have their letters to Santa written and signed. There will be cookies, hot cocoa and cider, and Christmas goodie bags for all kids in line for Santa! And the day of fun wouldn’t be complete without a little caroling and entertainment.
There’s nothing like the holidays in our hometown of Bonners Ferry. Get out and enjoy!
